The SFL Webinar Series is an interactive educational program providing students all over the world live virtual access to academic lectures on topics related to liberty, mentoring on activism, and advice for career building.

We run the program through webinars (web-based seminars), which allow us to stream a lecture live to hundreds of participants at the same time. Speakers and listeners join the program from their computers and interact in a live question and answer session after the lecture.

SFL additionally offers webinars based overseas in conjunction with our regional Executive Boards in Europe, Latin America, and Brazil. These webinars serve as a wonderful resource for students who are seeking educational opportunities from the perspective of prominent international libertarian scholars. As with our US-based webinars, students from all over the world are invited to listen to our live streaming lectures and participate in a live question and answer session after each webinar for free.

Join SFL and students from all over the world on Thursday April 17th at 8pm ET for a webinar discussion led by Sheldon Richman, vice president of The Future of Freedom Foundation.

For 15 years he was editor of The Freeman, published by the Foundation for Economic Education in Irvington, New York. He is the author of FFF’s award-winning book Separating School & State: How to Liberate America’s Families; Your Money or Your Life: Why We Must Abolish the Income Tax; and Tethered Citizens: Time to Repeal the Welfare State.

Join SFL and students from all over the world on Thursday April 24th at 8pm ET for a webinar discussion led by Clark Neily, senior attorney at the Institute for Justice.

Contest:
Attendees with the best questions during the webinar will receive a *free* copy of Clark Neily’s critically acclaimed new book, “Terms of Engagement: How Our Courts Should Enforce the Constitution’s Promise of Limited Government.”

Description:
The U.S. Constitution was designed to protect individuals from the illegitimate exercise of government power. Unfortunately, the judiciary’s abdication of its duty to serve as a meaningful check on the other branches has led to an explosion in the cost, size and intrusiveness of government. In this webinar, Institute for Justice Senior Attorney Clark Neily will explain how this result came to be and why it can only be remedied through the consistent application of “judicial engagement” —or a genuine quest for truth regarding the government’s ends and means in all constitutional cases, with no exceptions.

Bio:
Clark Neily is a senior attorney at the Institute for Justice, where he litigates a variety of constitutional cases. Clark is the author of Terms of Engagement: How Our Courts Should Enforce the Constitution’s Promise of Limited Government, and the director of IJ’s Center for Judicial Engagement. In his private capacity, Clark served as co-counsel for the plaintiffs in District of Columbia v. Heller, the historic Second Amendment challenge to Washington, D.C.’s gun ban. Clark received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Texas and clerked for Judge Royce Lamberth on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
